This book discusses Titian’s Portrait of Guidobaldo II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino, and his Son Francesco Maria II, that due to thorough analysis and restoration, and an in-depth study of the sitter has now been fully attributed to Titian. Authors Matthew Hayes and Ian Kennedy elaborate on the technique, date, restoration and authorship of the painting, whilst Ian Verstegen explores Guidobaldo’s central position in Italian politics. Anne-Marie Eze gives a comprehensive account of the painting’s provenance, presenting new documentary evidence on the painting’s nearly 500-year history.
